Join us for Diversity Day tomorrow! Students created this great video about the importance of talking and listening together! That's what this day is about -
This article made me question how much would be enough when we are thinking of training, classes, workshops and dialogues related to diversity and inclusion.
We are having civil rights crisis. We cannot wait anymore. #MLKLegacy @adamjohnfoss

The Marshall Center exists to affirm unique identities, to build a community that draws from them and to cultivate leaders who will introduce to the world the value of human diversity.

Is It Time To Say R.I.P. To 'P.O.C.'? : Code Switch

Just read this article today and I saw the Center for Social Justice and Community Impact posted this. Makes for a good discussion!

npr.org Suffice it to say, we use the term "POC" a lot on Code Switch. But critiques of the initialism — and the popularization of the term "BIPOC" — caused us to ask: Should we retire POC? Or is there use in it yet?

We are hosting our annual Wheaton Community of Color Gathering on TUESDAY!!! Please email us if you are able to attend or have any questions🤗 We cannot wait to see you there!!!

It is Latinx Heritage Month💥 Just in case you missed it, here are the events happening across campus!! We encourage you to reach out to the folks listed for each event and join in on the discussions! We cannot wait to see you there 💥

We will be offering two opportunities for participants, one group will meet on Thursdays and the other on Fridays. For every Thursday session, participants will meet via Zoom ‪from 3:30-4:30 PM EST‬ ‪starting on Thursday, September 17th.‬ For every Friday session, participants will meet via Zoom ‪from 1:30-2:30 PM EST‬ ‪starting on Friday, September 18th.‬ If you would like to sign up the interest form is in our bio!!!
